Children’s books always hold some kind of message to teach your kids. It might be as simple as learning to wash your hands or say “please” and “thank you”. A Kids Book About is a company that publishes books on more complicated topics. Usually, parents try to shield their kids from topics that are difficult to explain to kids. But these writers have figured out a way to explain it in a simple way so that children can understand. Some of the topics covered are white privilege, racism, depression, shame, bullying, change, and more.
The founder and CEO is Jelani Memory, a black man who is raising a mixed race family. He realized that these are important conversations that parents should be having with their children, no matter who they are. If you feel strange about buying a book about racism for your kids, the author has uploaded a YouTube video where he reads the entire book to you. This way, parents can see exactly what it says before they purchase it and give it to their children.
